Subject: This film has canned eel.

Hard to pinpoint on what subject the film is trying to focus on, starts out by celebrating our forefathers, then on the american family saving money, then to the woman in the home, then back to saving habits, then to the woman again etc. Film presents viewpoints that are very hard to believe circa 1962, in regards to what position the woman had in the American home. Are we really stupid to believe that the Father left all the final money decisions to Mother? I don't think so.
Worth watching for the Supermarket scenes though, which showcase such wonderful items such as records (I remember that!), tinned Eel and tinned octopus. Yum. And check that spelling outside. Is liquor REALLY spelled liquir?

Subject: messed up (but now fixed)
It's great to see these classics redone in MP4 but unfortunately this whole recent batch has encoding artifacts that are very obvious. I hope the encoding problems are fixed and these redone.

Edit 2013-07-29- Problem solved. The fixed version looks great. I don't normally rate but I have to give this one 5 stars.

Subject: Should be fixed now
Thanks for the heads up. I'm trying to track down what is corrupting the files.
